Short description of error
It would be a better user experience if the application was signed with an Application Developer ID from Apple so that users know it's an official version of Blender and not a potentially hacked/modified version.
Launching unsigned applications requires jumping through extra hoops on newer versions of macOS.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- download the latest beta from a macOS computer
- try to launch the application by double-clicking on it.
-> get an error message saying you can't launch the app because it is unsigned.
